Hi All,

I’m looking for a summary site that provides big picture view of national and international markets, news, etc ...

What do you read in the mornings and reference during the day?

I like that they show the 3 majors, the Nikkei, the VIX and some currencies right across the scrollable ribbon at the top, then on the right side if logged in with your own portfolio tickers showing (provided you added them to the porfolio).


It's basically a one stop shop and super simple to setup. They show/aggregate news from multiple sources.



Although I tend to only watch the financial news for satirical entertainment and usually take it with bias and a grain of salt.


Now tax policy change, and retirement policy change is definitely something I pay attention to even at the macro level of my own employers sponsored 401k plan.

As much as I dislike most of the programming on CNBC, I do like the website since it shows the top 5 or so financial related stories on the right side of the page. I *might* read a 1/3rd of the stories, but it gives me an idea of what is going on. I don't know how ad intensive the site is though, my Adblock plus works pretty well on the site.

I don't really read any of them, since I am pretty much a buy-and-hold mutual fund investor. Besides, I pretty much think that all these websites are garbage because I don't believe any of the authors have a clue. If they did, they wouldn't tell ME about it; they'd be away on their own private island or yacht, enjoying their billions.

I do go to Yahoo Finance every day to see what the markets are doing. If an article there catches my eye, I might read it. But, I don't take any of them very seriously.

Thanks - took a look at all of them ... they're all sort of following the same format ... was hoping there was something I hadn't noticed - with a bit more bling that would allow some tailoring for specific interests ...

I'm learning it's all entertainment. I do not like Jim Cramer, I do like Bloomberg. CNBC is interesting sometimes. Just keeping up with "who's up, who's down" what the future looks like. I like those commentators. I'd like an elementary financial channel that doesn't use acronym's all the time. It's so fast paced.

Not every day. I usually put on the financial channel in the morning while getting ready for work (unless they get annoying at which point the remote control is used).

I also listen to a financial station on the radio while driving.

Yes, I don't look at any of these sites to drive any actual investment decisions. But I do like to keep up in general on what's going on in industry, and sometimes find specific news about a company interesting. If I run into someone who works at one of those companies, or in that industry, I find it can help get some conversation going. Or just feeds my general curiosity.

Some good links for that here, I need to bookmark these and try them out for a while. Thanks to all!

When I'm interested, I go to Kadaza and "finance and biz" then click through the sites I like.

I’ve got two TV shows programmed to record on a regular basis: CBS Sunday Morning and PBS Nightly Business Report. The latter presents finance-related news in a much calmer way than networks like CNBC (in my opinion). I do check the CNBC mobile app if I want to see which way the wind is blowing in the markets.

I find the cable business news just try’s to hook you in with hype (up or down) and to me that is annoying.

I read MarketWatch on my phone and am happy with their summary.

I’m kinda liking seekingalpha ... hard core stuff with real article links ...

Finance.yahoo has quick info on markets, but nonsense trash for articles.

Kanazawa.com is interesting .... but can’t be tailored, right?
